Payroll taxes charged to the employer include the Québec Pension Plan (QPP), Employment Insurance (EI), the Québec Parental Insurance Plan (QPIP), the Health Services Fund (HSF) and the Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST). Certain contribution rates vary according to the employers specific situation.
The acquisition of shares of the Fonds de solidarité FTQ may give rise to labour-sponsored fund tax credits. The tax credits amount to 30%, namely 15% at the Quebec level and 15% at the federal level, and are limited to $1,500 per fiscal year, which represents a $5,000 purchase of shares of the Fonds de solidarité FTQ. Under the 2023-2024 provincial budget, only individuals whose taxable income in Quebec for the 2022 taxation year was less than $112,656 will have access to 30% tax credits for the 2024 taxation year. Please note, however, that this measure has not currently been the subject of a bill or legislative amendment and could therefore be subject to modifications.
